Dating is monotonous.
We go through all of this wining and dining to ultimately decide whether or not we want to fuck one another. Usually, I’d say 9 times out of 10, it’s the female making the decision as to whether or not she will allow the male to impale her vagina with his penis.
Dating would be a lot easier if we relied on pheromones. Pheromones are [subjectively] attractive. They emanate from our sweat; nasty, disgusting, dirty sweat is hot, y’know?
Men produce pheromones in their armpits and under their balls. Women produce copulins (pheromones) around their butts (apocrine and perianal glands) and in vaginal secretions.
How much easier would life be if we chose mates by males sniffing females’ asses and females sniffing males’ armpits.
Sex is a bit dirty (nothing wrong with that), and not some kind of controlled experiment in a sterile lab.
The world would be a lot less confusing if it were this way, and divorce rates would be a lot less drastic. Bank on it!
